   I have a question. My oldest son who lives in central New York called me the other day. He was at a local junkyard looking for some parts for his Ramcharger. He hit a deer and needed a front fender. While he was roaming around he came across an "old" Chrysler. He called me on my cell to ask me about the car and if the engine would be anything worthwhile. He took a pic of what was once a car. Turns out it is a 62 or 63 300 G at least it looked like either of those years. Not much left to the car. The deck lid which was very obviously from that era had a 300C emblem. Definitely showed 300C and not G. I have no explanation for that at all.
    The engine is a 383. I thought that all letter cars (assuming it is a Letter 300) had RB engines. 413 would be what I would think would be in the car.  The engine is definitely  a B Big block. I told him to scrape the ID pad and find out just what it is. The engine has a cast iron single point distributor and a cast iron 4 bbl intake.
     The ID pad has stampings I have never seen before on a 383. Possibly someone can let me know just what it is.    ML383    below that is the number is 21625  In the lower right hand corner is the Maltese Cross with nothing else. I know the Maltese cross is for undersize crank journal (pretty sure) however I have never seen the ML before a 383. I have seen the T and S on early engines, but never an ML. At first I thought it might be a marine engine but according to everything I read about them it was always LM the  L standing for left hand rotation. Very curious just what he found. He said that the yard will sell the engine and trans for 150.00. Anybody know what this is?
